That talking point was repeated regularly throughout the rest of the night on Fox News - accepted and repeated mainly because Trump said it.

Initially, Hannity and the network said that Hannity would simply air his show from the rally venue in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and follow that with an interview with Trump.

"While we often hear that all politics is local, there's just no getting away from the fact that Trump's policies are on the ballot", said host Laura Ingraham on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" during her opening monologue, in which she focused on protecting and preserving America's and Americans' future. "I am covering the final rally for the show".

New claim: 'When POTUS invited me on stage to give remarks last night, I was surprised, yet honored by the president's request. Already No. 1 in the cable news ratings, Fox has had a strong fall with the campaign and hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, with Hannity leading the way.

"To be clear, I will not be on stage campaigning with the president", Hannity tweeted on Monday.

"Fox News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events", the network said in a statement. Here's my account of him being scheduled to do his show from a Tea Party event in Cincinnati in 2010, and Fox News cancelling his appearance after heavy criticism from mainstream media.

Rebel Wilson responds to backlash over 'plus-sized' claims
Liam Hemsworth , Priyanka Chopra, and Adam DeVine also star in the rom-com set for release on Valentine's Day, 2019. Technically those actresses were plus size when filming those movies or 2.

Since then, Fox opinion personalities have doubled down on their support of Trump and Hannity's popularity has soared, making for an uncomfortable relationship with the organization's news side. His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications. Jeanine Pirro also campaigned with the president, shouting to the crowd, "Do you like the fact that [Trump] is the tip of the spear who goes out there every day and fights for us?"

Attendees at a Trump rally Monday sang "Amazing Grace" as an elderly woman who collapsed was tended to by medical professionals and eventually escorted out of the building on a stretcher.

Monday's rally appearance was not shown on Fox News Channel, but was aired on C-SPAN. Fox has not addressed the question publicly.

"People throughout the company think a new line was crossed", one employee of the network told CNN.

"They know, vaguely, that they're not supposed to have one of their hosts endorse a candidate or a party", CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota said.
